Project's result

Rohil is currently preparing his website for launch on Github.

They started it from zero. Are you ready to level up with us?

Summary

In order to ‘gamify’ the often boring process of learning and understanding software algorithms, Rohil developed a website that takes the user through a series of interactive software challenges, each designed to teach users a specific concept. Challenges come with a simple animation to immerse the user in the experience and then, users must write and execute code on the website to solve the challenge. They are graded on accuracy. The website makes use of various front-end and back-end technologies, such as React, NodeJS, Docker, Flask, and PostgreSQL. It also uses JavaScript and Python heavily.

Project review

“I had a fantastic time with Chris as a mentor. He seemed to always know the answer to my questions, no matter how obscure I thought they might be. He also has a lot of practical knowledge (both from professional and personal experience) that he is always ready to share. If he doesn't know the answer to a question, he will search for the resources necessary to do so and guide me through the process of finding the answer.”
